NBA Playoffs Round 2

Lakers vs Thunder game 1 is over and it's still in the middle of the 3rd quarter. I don't know what is up with OKC on defense but they play Kobe better than anyone else in the league does as a team.
I predict Indiana is going down hard. They gave it all they got in game 1, their best chance to catch Miami napping, and couldn't close it out. I forsee a Gentleman's Sweep; Miami wins game 2 big and then a sqeaker in game 3, and Indiana takes one game for pride before going back to Miami as a side trip on their way home for the rest of the postseason.
Clips-Spurs should make for some fun, high-scoring games, but LA doesn't stand much of a chance. They remind me a lot of the Denver and Phoenix teams in the middle of last 2nd that always managed to steal a game in San Antonio and make tons of highlight reels plays, but in the end it was flash vs substance and they usually lost in 5 games. Those teams' problem was they just couldn't stop the Spurs' offense and that was back when the Spurs were only an average offensive team.
The 2nd round playoff schedules suck completely. Some series have back-to-back games (and it isn't for lack of time to finish the rounds b/c those same series have games with 2 days breaks between them as well). The time crunch problem could exacerbate itself b/c they started part the 2nd round before the 1st round was finished, so if that's the same part of the 2nd round that finishes up first, somebody could end up with a really long ass wait before the conference finals. And then the Spurs and Thunder fans get "rewarded" with home court advantage meaning 0 weekend or Friday games unless the series goes to game 7.
Also, for some reason, only Indiana-Philadelphia seems to be able to get their games on ABC. I know I'm in the minority but I like having fewer games on cable b/c cable TV is one of the most overpriced, underserviced industries in the nation.
